Ethan Miller/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) — With so many stars in dazzling couture, it’s tough to steal the spotlight at the Academy of Country Music Awards, but Trisha Yearwood did just that, as she showed off her toned figure.

“I’ve lost about 20 lbs.,” the country star, 48, told People magazine in February. “I’ve been dieting and exercising.”

Yearwood, who hosts a Food Network cooking show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, and has authored several best-selling cookbooks, has kept the weight off by avoiding sugar and eating cleanly–but also, allowing herself to indulge every once in awhile. (Mac and cheese is a favorite!)

“Real people battle their weight,” she said. “We all struggle between eating healthy and falling off the wagon. That’s how I live!”
